. bush's terms in office. under president obama, 6.7 million more americans have fallen intopoverty. under this president, the same one who had the utd tutter audacity to stand before cameras and speak as though he has been absolutely uninvolved in policy for the past five years. i mean an extraordinary thought. the number of workers receiving disability benefits under his administration over the course of the past five years has risen by 20% to almost 9 million people. under president obama, the number of people receiving food stamps has risen by 50% to nearly 48 million americans. under president obama, 21.6 million americans are unemployed, underemployed or given up looking for work. under president obama, the average duration of unemployment has nearly doubled from 19.8 weeks to more than 36 weeks. today president obama joined the nearly 70% of voters who say the united states is now headed in the wrong direction. so often it seems, we say, you can't make this stuff up. joining us now author, radio talk show host, monica crowley and david webb and matt patrick, radio talk show h
creep that occurred under bush and has accelerated under obama has made it very difficult to expand in areas where you typically find high wage blue collar jobs, in transportation, energy extraction and so on. i hope rick will be pleased to hear that i'm not blaming this entirely on president obama. >> well, on the other hand, mike, president obama's solution to all this and they're saying it in europe, the imf is saying it, is to have this global wealth tax, to tax the rich more, to bring the rich down, that will help income disparity. what do you think of that plan? >> as we've seen under president obama, david, the exact opposite happens. one of the areas where obama has really hurt the economy is with small businesses. his investment tax increase really hurts small business. it went from 35% to 43% on passive income. this really is an usual. during expansions you typically see new business startups accelerate. this is the only recovery i've seen back to the 1930s where new business startups have flat lined. when you increase tax rates on them you don't get that capital. all that
a couple of days ago. tens of thousands of americans who think they have health insurance under obama care may discover january 1 that they do not. after days of refusing to release the stats on the problems that have been plaguing health care.gov the administration has announced under pressure from the press that the enrollments of 1 of every 4 people in the months of october and november were botched. at least one of every four. now since then they say at least one of every ten federal applications have had problems, since the fix. they think the number is higher in the state exchanges. a reporter pressed the agency in charge of the exchanges, the federal exchange for a solution to the mess. people think they have the coverage. they don't have the coverage. the insurer has a botched form. it doesn't have a name so it can't call the person to tell them, it didn't work for you. here was the answer. >> but you're not saying everyone should call. you're not suggesting urging them strongly despite the fact you are talking about a potential one in ten error rate going forward? >> i would encou
of life and what we stand for around the globe. there's no doubt that under president obama our country has call a new what i'll normal -- slow economic growth, high unemployment, stagnant wages. gwen: take your pick at what you want to believe but at the root of this is a certain amount of disillusionment which runs deep, michael. >> there are dynamics in the were there before the downturn that continue to evidence themselves and the big problem is how do you divide the economic pie? it goes back to the problems of the late 1970's where the people are getting more of the pie and working people are getting less. it used to be that unlettered people could get a good living wage in this country and that's changing a lot. the difference between a living wage and minimum wage? >> it's grown bigger. wage is enough money to raise a family on and you think about the key things in our economy that someone has to do to raise a family -- education, healthcare -- these are the most inhat have gone up price meanwhile wages have been flat over the last 12, 13 years, real wages have been flat and ins
. that is what we spent with the obama administration. do you realize that infrastructure under obama has actually gone down by one-third? where the money go? that is what we want to know. melissa: infrastructure spending has gone down? >> we are actuallypending less on infrastructure. i thought we were having all of this shovel ready projects that we were supposed to be doing. only 26 billion, i believe, of the 80 billion went toward infrastructure. the rest went to a lot of different types of programs that have not stimulated the economy, nor has this fix a lot of my bridges. melissa: what about you? are the roads and bridges crumbling where you are? have you just given up? i am not going to drive, not going to pay any more federal taxes. i guess we will just a taxing my bicycle. >> eleven washington dc. of course the roads are crumbling in the nation's capital. my big worry is that we are going to turn to something like a carbon tax because government is so desperate for revenue these days that they are looking at that as ne of the biggest tax increases in history. this going to be a

worse than bush. i covered those wars, i know what happened. under president obama i think what we have is someone who has sort of rebranded some of the more egregious aspects of the bush-cheney counterterror apparatus and i think has convinced himself that they're waging a smarter war. so they're relying on the drones much more than the bush administration did, using small team of coovert operators to conduct either kill or capture, and because guantanamo remains open despite the president's pledge to close it during his anytime office, i think that the obama administration doesn't want to capture too many people. so the kill-capture program has generally become a kill program. and so at the end of the day, i think the enduring legacy for president obama on the issues i cover is that he made possible a continuation of the bush-cheney counterterrorism apparatus. i imagine dick cheney fly fishing on his boat somewhere in wyoming, you know, sort of having a good chuckle and saying, you know, thank god obama was president because the next time we're in power, we're going to be able to cont
to be preempting a fed taper. >> it was a program started under bush, continued under obama, and it is been brought down. i don't know what the right number of weeks is. but i do know that the 1.3 million american people who are getting unemployment benefits, having that stuff, is bad politics and that policy. was going to interview nelson mandela. a got canceled. i was brokenhearted. i am even more brokenhearted now. that was what was really fun. everyone lay claim to him. he was one of those leaders. >> we did learn this evening that president obama did speak by phone with nelson mandela's widow. we are learning from the associated press that at least three american presidents will forel to south africa memorial services. they will travel next week to pay their respects. they will be joined on air force one i former president george w. bush and laura bush. they gracefully accepted the invitation from the obama's. former president bill clinton also saying he planned to travel to south africa. as we leave you this evening, a look at the iconic empire state building in new york city lit up in the co

added 30 jobs. >> this month under president obama and these are also at the bls.gov. go right there. 75% of all the jobs that president obama created -- he created 1.8 million jobs, 75% of those, part time. >> you keep saying he created those jobs. i keep saying his job creation started when he issued the stimulus. >> but the stimulus was a total bust on jobs and they even admit that. >> it was a total boss when we inherited 700 a month from the bush administration. >> what has he been able to accomplish when he was in office? >> he has to personal responsibility. >> but the stimulus dollars, the government statistics. >> it keeps us from a depression. >> the real wealth gap is in d.c. d.c. versus the rest of the united states. the wealth gap is so large michael moore could waddle through it. >> the administration wants to take credit for the stock market but not the income inequality that has gotten worse under his administration. >> how is that, bob? >> income inequality has been growing for 20 years. it's not any one president's fault. >> the fact of the matter is, yes, it's gotten w
to a halt under the threat that president obama will rewrite it anywhere. >> could you argue that it's happening right now as you try to work out differences between the various perspectives on a piece of legislation those that may be asked to get something they think the president agrees with them on mike say why should i give up on that because they n get a change done unilaterally by the executive branch. >> you could imagine such a negotiation about the effective date of obamacare. after the statute is passed via decide what the congress wants. gridlock is almost quite a predictable result. >> professor turley, the constitution of the breed of power isn't simply about stopping one branch of government from usurping another. it's about protecting the liberty of american of concentrated government power. how does the modification of act of congress affect the balance of power between the political branches into the liberty interest of the american people? >> the danger is quite severe. the problem with the president is doing is that he spoke simply posing a danger to the constituti
impact." but under president obama, america's spending more money on education than any other nation in the world. also, taxes have been going up. and we have record debt. but the left wants more spending and even higher taxes. simply put, the big government spending machine has not helped the economy very much. but again, liberal theory trumps results. >> the idea that so many children are born into poverty in the wealthiest nation on earth is heartbreaking enough, but the idea that a child may never be able to escape that poverty because she lacks a decent education or health care or a community that views her future as their own? that should offend all of us. >> well, it certainly offends me. if children are not getting a good education or do not have proper health care, i'm offended. but you cannot bankrupt the entire nation on some ideological quest for income equality. in a capitalistic system, that's impossible. a "wall street journal" editorial yesterday was blunt -- "mr. obama returned to his favorite theme of rising income inequality. he ought to know since few presidents h

and healing were all under president obama. i remember worrying about the toll it was taking on him. even the president's comfort was woefully inadequate in the face of this particular be unspeakable loss. it became some small measure of love on a weekend when evil range. the funny thing was president obama has never spoken about these meetings. he addressed the shooting in newtown and gun violence in a subsequent speech but didn't speak about private gatherings. he was nearly silent on air force one as we rode back to washington. he said little about his time with those families since. must have been one of the defining moments of his presidency, those quiet hours in solemn classrooms, extending as much feeling as was in his power to extend but he kept it to himself, never seeking to teach a lesson based on those mournful conversations or opening them up to public view. jesus teaches us that some things, the holiest things, the most painful and important and cherished things, we are to do in secret. not for public consumption or display but as acts of service to each other and worship to
is the head spokesman for the pentagon under, you know, president obama's pentagon, has become the chief washington spokesman for bp. >> former white house correspondent for abc news. >> abc news. he followed bob gates to the pentagon first with president bush then with president obama. sort of a classic revolving door figure, geoff is. but no, so -- that was -- i mean, it's a classic two step. i mean, i also think bp has done very, very well rehabilitating itself. i mean, thanks largely to flooding the media with all kinds of goodies and a lot of advertising money. and we're supposed to feel good about bp again. >> narrator: two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf and every day since we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy. >> and what's the moral that you -- we draw from that story? about this town? >> about this town, is -- well, first of all, when there's a problem, there is a lot of money to b
% of groceries and food stamps due to that. neil: we also relax the standards? >> yes, starting under george bush. as well as president obama. there were a requirements and tests and the like. but that is a recent development. while people are misleading others about when they say that there is not an explosion of food stamps, there's a higher growth rate. what they are saying is rescue the food stamp program for the truly poor. the. neil: we could go back and forth for who is really poor and who is not poor. but you could go beyond food stamps, now you are close to one out of three americans getting assistance. and it makes my head spin. because the direction is that we need to relax the standards or the economy will start to have no choice but to expand this program to the degree we have. it is unaffordable. it is untenable, is not? >> food stamps are not expected to be contributing to our long-term death of deficit. neil: the amount of money that we are committing, and the top that we are talking about, you're right about the improvement and things will snap back into place when the economy an
enrolled. >> there is almost no possible foul up that isn't occurring to this process under obama care. people being enrolled in names that aren't theirs, having their children enrolled under their names. the cruelest irony of all is that obama care was passed on the promise it would bring insurance to the uninsured, health care to people who couldn't get it and the opposite is true. more have lost their health care that have gained it so far. the cruelest of the cruelest is some don't know. if they wind up sick, believing they're covered by health insurance find out they're no the. >> you think because of how important this program is to the president, the president's legacy and his signature program, he would be having meeting after meeting with health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius to make sure we are on par, going to nail this thing. when we roll this out it's going to be a success. more scrutiny paid to how much time president obama actually devoted to meeting one on one with kathleen sebelius. peter went through these gia logs of the institute logbooks this week a
used to have family coverage for five people. $5,000.in my family for i had a $5,000 deductible. under obama care, you can have a high deductible and still pay $20,000. it mandated everything that guos into it. the problem is that the insurance companies are never going to offer those policies again because they're told within a year, even if you delay it for a year, within a year, forced to buy e the new policies which are more expensive. you sell bread, you sell for $1 a loaf. they say we're going force verybody to buy it for $2 a loaf. you going to continue to sell it for $1 a loaf? do that. going to young healthy people were not buying insurance because it was oo expensive under the old system. we made it more expensive. you think more or less people will buy it? a year, it may spiral out of control where premiums come back before the premiums ions and the go up to such a degree that the system just collapses of its own weight. there may come a time that the democrats beg us to fix it. the only reason they may not is the president seems to think that he's a monarch and he seems to
the retirement. same thing with obama care. it's all premised under young people, healthy people paying who don't need services. the young people are say, look, we don't have a monthe money, w don't have the job. youth is suffering twice the unemployment rate as everybody else in the country. if you can pay a $95 fine to get away from the $1800 liability, of course they're not going to do it. >> millennials are the ones who help catapult barack obama into the white house, voting for him 2-1. now the same harvard poll showw a majority of them disapprove of obama. 47% would recall him if they could. is that because they feel dissieved by him over this? >> i think, you know, young people i don't think they feel deceived. what i would argue, i think young people are trying to figure out, they're trying to find jobs. they're dealing with this horrible economy. also lands in the house of representatives where they understand nothing is getting done. the reason why we have a youth job crisis in this country is because there's been no jobs bill passed. i think the president -- >> -- trillion dollar sti

people's living and obama care is front and center in that. >> no, senator. it's a fact that under apartheid, millions of black people or black people as you have been known to call them, were forced into labor camps and a fact that obama care ensures access to health care for millions of americans who actually frees them from oppressive fear about the devastating consequences of having health care and while apartheid divided people, the affordable care act unites them. joining me now is representative of california karen bass and white house correspondent for american urban radio networks april ryan. thanks to you both for joining me. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> congresswoman, nelson mandela, the communist. i mean, these guys just don't even know their his. >> ri no, they don't. they -- it's ignorance is embarrassing. it's a reason why the image on the continent had to be repaired after what our role was in the apartheid regime. and why we had to have a mass movement to pressure the u.s. government to break ties with the south african regime. so it's an ignorant statement and i
